Deodorant

If you've been using conventional deodorant or antiperspirant for years, it can take 2-4 weeks to detox and release all of the aluminum in your armpits that have been preventing you from sweating. 

During this transition to using a natural deodorant, you may find that you sweat or smell slightly more than usual but push through it! On the other side awaits fresh smelling, planet friendly armpits.

For more information read this handy blog article we did about making the switch.

Yes you are good to fly because fussy is a solid stick and under 100ml. Our unique pebble shape also means fussy can slip easily into any bag or your pocket.

All of our products are free of parabens, a chemical preservative which is used in personal care products. Therefore, we recommend you use our deodorant within 12 months of receiving.

Good question! Take a deeeeep breath because we've been fussy about everything in our mission to bring you fresh smelling, planet friendly armpits.

Both have the same aim of fresh-smelling armpits but they achieve this in different ways. An antiperspirant uses aluminum to block your sweat ducts so you simply can't sweat. Our natural deodorant on the other armpit is packed full of clean effective ingredients that work to absorb moisture and neutralise any odor.

Our natural deodorant allows you to sweat naturally but without the stink. We use tapioca starch to absorb any moisture, coconut oil to moisturise and protect your skin, and a special probiotic (more commonly used in yoghurts than deodorant) to inhibit the growth of odour causing bacteria*. And just in case that doesn't smell good enough, we add some beautiful natural fragrances. Keeping armpits, noses and the planet happy.

* Did you know sweat doesn’t actually smell, it’s the bacteria that it comes into contact with which creates the smell. This bacteria likes to hang out in places like armpits, I mean why wouldn’t you, nice and warm. And it's this bacteria we target.

If you've been using conventional deodorant or antiperspirant for years, it can take 2-4 weeks to detox and release all of the aluminum in your armpits that have been preventing you from sweating.

During the transition to using a natural deodorant, you may find that you get a reaction (itchy pits, or a rash) or smell more than usual but push through it! On the other side awaits fresh smelling, planet friendly armpits.

We can't speak for other natural deodorants but ours is 100% effective for at least 24 hours. Our formula is packed full of clean effective ingredients that are scientifically proven to neutralize odor-causing bacteria, whilst helping to moisturise and protect your skin.

Our initial subscription pack which includes a case in any colour and one refill costs £13 with FREE UK delivery. Refills thereafter are just £5 and will last on average between 4-6 weeks.

Or if you don't fancy committing just yet (don't worry we won't take it personally) try our one-off purchase pack which includes a case and two refills of your choice for just £20.

Our formula is backed by science and will keep you smelling fresh for at least 24 hours.

No way. We've tested our formula on a variety of fabrics washed at a range of temperatures. So don that silk dress or shirt and strut like you've never strutted before.

Each refill lasts between 4-6 weeks depending on how frequently you apply.

We tend to find a swipe or two under each armpit does the trick but see how you get on. Every armpit is its own beautiful individual.

We worked hard to make sure our formula is as sensitive to your armpits as it is to the planet. And whilst we do use bicarbonate of soda, it's in much smaller amounts than others on the market and a very high grade so some people that have previously been sensitive to it, have had no irritation or rashes with our formula.

It's completely dishwasher-proof but if you're impatient wipe it down by hand.

Ingredients

Our deodorant is formulated and manufactured by our partner here in the UK. They are a fantastic family run company with extensive green credentials. For example, they use solar power, solar heating and all their company vehicles are electric.

Each refill is full of clean ingredients that not only care for the skin but the planet too. With Sunflower wax, coconut oil, shea butter, caprylic, tapioca, sodium bicarbonate, magnesium hydroxide and then a probiotic (called Lactobacillus) that literally eats sweat molecules for breakfast...lunch and dinner.

Yes we never test on animals, only smelly people and we are currently in the process of obtaining our Leaping Bunny Certification.

We've done everything we can to minimise the risk of rashes including using a particularly fine grade of bicarbonate soda. But if you have super-sensitive skin there is always a chance of a rash and we'd recommend you avoid our Wavy Days scent as it contains peppermint.

Our deodorant is free of aluminium, parabens, toxins, sulphates and it won't stain your clothes.

We do use bicarbonate of soda but it's in much smaller amounts than others on the market and a very high grade so some people that have previously been sensitive to it, have had no irritation or rashes with our formula.

Of course! We only use pure essential oils, never synthetics and we follow guidelines by the International Fragrance Regulatory Association (IFRA) to ensure the safety of all our formulations.

We look to source organic ingredients wherever possible but we are not currently 100% organic. We are 100% natural though.

Sustainability

You bet! We are currently B-Corp pending as part of our continued commitment to people and the planet. This means that not only are we using business as a force for good, but we have to meet the highest standards of social and environmental performance.

As well as this, through our partnership with Climate Partner, all of our products are Certified Carbon Neutral, the sales of which go towards supporting green energy projects around the world. Not only that but when you purchase fussy you can actually scan the product to track the positive impact you have had.

We've worked hard to eliminate carbon emissions across our entire supply chain and find partner companies that adhere to our fussy values. From using solar power and water to living gardens on factory roofs, all of our partners run sustainable practices. And where we can't eliminate carbon with work with Climate Partner to offset it by supporting carbon reduction projects around the world.

We believe fussy is the easiest way to live more sustainably. It means no trips to refills stores, no cardboard tubes that can't get wet and no underarm pit creams. And as if that wasn't enough a study by The Ellen Macarthur Foundation also found that if refilling were the norm across all personal care and beauty products the reduction in greenhouse gases would be 80-85%. But like all these things it comes down to personal preference.

We can do better than that! Our refills are 100% compostable and made from waste material. And our durable case is made with recycled plastic and is 100% recyclable.

We use zero single-use plastic. With a case that's designed to keep, the only thing you'll be throwing away is our home compostable refills which are made from waste material. In fact by using fussy you will save at least 250 single-use plastic deodorants from ever existing and so far we have prevented over 4 tonnes!

Our pebble-shaped cases are made with 50% recycled plastic and 50% ABS to help it last a lifetime. Our ambition is to use ocean-bound plastic and we are currently working through the technical challenges to achieve this.

Our plastic-free refills are made from sugarcane pulp which is a waste product of the sugar industry and are home compostable. So you can just chuck them in your bin or the garden.

Just put them into your regular bin or you can home compost them where they will decompose in 6-12months.

General

When we noticed the huge amounts of single-use plastic in our own bathrooms we thought there had to be a better way. So we emptied our savings pots onto the kitchen table and set about designing fussy. Our challenge was to make sure fussy was more convenient, effective and desirable than other sustainable products we had tried. We think we got there and hope you agree.

Because we are fussy about everything in our mission to bring you fresh smelling, planet-friendly armpits! From sourcing the highest quality ingredients we can to making sure our packaging uses the minimum amount of cardboard. We truly believe that by being fussy we can create a better planet for everybody.

We're based in the UK but we're making armpits smell fresh worldwide.

We do indeed. We have a super cool washbag made from recycled bottles and the rather dishy deo dish which is designed to store your refills in.

Are you fussy about the planet we live on? Are you a lean mean super driven machine? Are you a lovely human? OK great, if we were hiring you sound like a perfect fit. Keep an eye out here for any vacancies.
